I love Tara's idea for her blocks...I was sorely tempted to send out a repeat performance, but then I came up with a really wacky idea. I hope you don't mind playing along.
I decided at the beginning of the year that I wanted to come to some serious decisions about UFO's. I need to either finish them, pass them on, or re-purpose (recycle, really) them. I spotted one UFO on the shelf a couple of weeks ago and decided to take a peek in the bin and make a decision about it's future.
So I have come up with a plan for you to help me make lemonade from lemons. I came up with a new plan using the pieces I have, and cut some of the solid green to help make it all happen. Since the green was in the bin with the UFO, I must have intended it to go together at some point. Lord, I miss my mind!
The 4-patch unit measures 5.5 inches square (unfinished), the rectangles are 3 x 5.5 inches (unfinished), and the squares are 3 inches (unfinished).
After laying out the pieces, I sewed them in rows first. On the top and bottom rows, I pressed the seams toward the green rectangles. On the middle row, I pressed the seams away from the 4-patch unit, again, toward the green rectangles.
After assembling the rows, I pressed the seams toward the outside of the square, away from the 4-patch unit. The final block should be 10.5 inches square (unfinished).
